Get Your Green On! Wear your colors to support the Phoenix
The Pep Band might be wearing white (with green trim), but everyone else should go all-green for one of UW-Green Bay’s biggest stretches of basketball ever.
The Phoenix men (18-6, 10-2) fed off the energy of 7,000 mostly green-clad fans to beat the 11th ranked, league-leading Butler Bulldogs Monday night at the Resch Center. Another showdown comes Saturday night (Feb. 7) when the Phoenix hosts third-place UW-Milwaukee.
On the women’s side, UW-Green Bay (17-3 overall, 9-0 conference) holds a two-game lead over second place Butler following wins over the Bulldogs and Valparaiso last week. The women will match-up against Youngstown State Thursday and Cleveland State on Saturday at the Kress Events Center on campus.
Phoenix Men’s Coach Tod Kowalczyk is encouraging the UW-Green Bay student body to help make “Green Bay the toughest place to play on the road” by coming out to the upcoming Green Out games. The games feature free T-shirts to the first 200 UW-Green Bay students to pass through the Resch Center doors. The Green Out games are set for:
- • Saturday, Feb. 7 vs. UW-Milwaukee
• Wednesday, Feb. 18 vs. Valparaiso
UW-Green Bay faculty and staff are reminded that they will be recognized Feb. 19 at a Phoenix women’s basketball game. Student-athletes who earned gpa’s of 3.5 or better either of the past two semesters will be introduced. And those who helped them get there (faculty and staff) will be recognized as well. RSVP for tickets no later than Friday, Feb. 13 by contacting Marilyn McCarey at ext. 2625 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional tickets for faculty and staff are available for $5.
